Rajon Rondo, Celtics point guard and well-adjusted extraterrestrial, got tossed from yesterday's playoff game against the Atlanta Hawks after making intentional contact with an official. He could be in line for a suspension, though the league has yet to decide; the rulebook says that an ejection like his merits the suspension, but there could be enough uncertainty in his little chest bump that the NBA might use to try and avoid keeping him out.
Either way, it was weird, and it's worth trying to understand what Rajon might've been thinking when he took things to the next level.
"Look at KG scrambling for that ball. I'll stay up here. I don't really like wood."
"A foul? Ref, it's not our fault that the basketball grew hair. ... That's Josh Smith's head? Oh."
"Josh Smith's head? The basketball? Easy mistake! They're both round. WE CAN TALK ABOUT THIS."
